    The children, grand children, great grand, in-laws (my father's family has all passed), nieces, nephews, old friends. the church choir he was a member of till he was about 93yrs old. To hear him sing was fantastic. He has such a good tenor voice.

    He had been looking forward to this party for over a year!

    What a fabulous video of your father's centenary.

    He only looks in his 70s and is one of the sprightiest 100 year olds I have ever seen.

    A lovely choice of music with Gilles Vigneault. I had not heard of him before but he has a similar approach to chanson as a wonderful fellow Carl and myself encountered when we worked in Basse Normandie and that was Yves Duteil.

    The way in which you French Canadians celebrate is very similar to the way they celebrate in France - down to the circular tables, the dancing and the flow of wine and champagne too.

    Great stuff

    Cheers

    So beautiful this tribute to your Father (!), I cried and am still crying. Your Father's eyes, oh how they sparkle - And the pure, sweet gaiety and amazing love captured on film, forever and ever, is surely a magnificent gift not only to all of you here today, as well as to your Father, but to the generations and descendants who will follow and who will appreciate so much that this was done in his honor. A priceless gift indeed.

    Love - such all encompassing love! Thank you for allowing us to share this wonderful film. It has truly touched my heart. emoticon
